LSL to cover Sick Leave

James Murphy Tax


I have a staff member who has been employed for nine years as of May this year.

He has no personal leave. Can he use his long service leave entitlements to cover his sick leave? He was away for surgery for five days.


If workers require more time off work than they have accrued in personal leave, they can access any other accrued paid leave, such as annual or long service leave, to cover absences due to illness or injury.
